I can tell you from experience, making one of these takes time, patience and a keen eye for detail. But, the outcome is always rewarding. I would venture to say this egg elicits more ooooh’s and ahhhh’s than any other minaudiére in the Vivian Alexander collection.
As luck would have it, I have 2 of these splendid vintage pieces!
They don't show up on sale like this often, if ever.
You should buy one.
